Cohen v. Ford, No. 00-CV-5966 (C.D. Cal. dismissed Feb. 21, 2001)
Status: Dropped
In 1998, Gary Kremen sued Stephen Michael Cohen, alleging that he had fraudulently obtained the domain name owned by Kremen by forging a letter to Network Solutions in 1995, asking for transfer of ownership of the URL. (That suit eventually ended with a $65 million award to Kremen, and restoration of control of the domain, although the judgment has not been collected.) While that case was pending, in 2000 Cohen sued Luke Ford over coverage of the lawsuit on his porn-industry blog. But the case was dropped by the plaintiff in 2001.
